I've had 2 balls of Noro Silk Garden in my stash for a very long time ot knowing what to make of them. I got the yarn in a swap, and I remember that I was so happy because this is not a yarn I would buy myself. Mostly beacuse of the price!
But oh how dissapointed I got when I finally started to crochet with the yarn! It has so much debris like hay and other thing in it and one of the balls had a knot at the end.... And no, the yarn attached was not in the same colour! Due to the itcyness- this is a yarn that would never get close to my skin in other placec than my hands... I can't imagine making a neckwarmer or clothes for babies/kids in this yarn. But the colours is beautiful, but that is the only positiv thing i have to say about this yarn.
So, what's your opinion on Noro yarns. Are they all filled with bits of hay and other itchy parts or do you think it's worth the price?
I made the mittens by crocheting 44 st into a ring and then only crocheting in the back loops. I made about 20 rows before i jumped over 8 st for the thumb. Then another 20 rows before decreasing 2 st in each side every rows, 8 times. Mine got a little bit too long, so I could have dropped a few rows before I started decreasing.
Pattern: My own.
Yarn: 100 g Noro Silk Garden #236.
Hook: 3,5 mm / E.
